“CLA2000 is the ultimate SOLAS and inland waterway globally approved Class A AIS transceiver. “


Digital Deep Sea’s new CLA2000 is the ultimate SOLAS and inland waterway globally approved Class A AIS transponder. Water and weather proof to IP67, it has a full integrated 5” hi-res colour display supporting a wide range of functionality including electronic chart navigation with optional C-Map MAX charting and AIS target management.


Proven, superior real world AIS message receive and transmit and message processing performance is delivered by advanced core SDR AIS technology. This state of the art technology ensures you see more targets, more of the time and at maximum range.


The CLA2000 will find applications on SOLAS mandated vessels over 300GRT as well as workboats, rescue services, inland waterways users, RIBs, large yachts and any user wanting premium AIS performance and safety.


The CLA2000 has optimised software for detecting AIS SART and MOB devices with a dedicated icon for this class of AIS. An automatic alarm is activated on detection of an AIS SART beacon activation. The target plot display will also calculate relative bearing of the device for easy visualisation of the target and rescue.


The CLA2000 is fitted with a micro SD card reader located behind a waterproof cover on the front panel. This can support software updates, data logging of AIS and position data to a blank card as well as compatibility with C- Map MAX charting cards for optional detailed back ground charting. The CLA2000 has an integrated wireless interface for sending AIS and position data to smart phones, tablets, PCs and MACs for use with 3rd party charting and navigation apps. It supports client mode where it can connect to an existing wireless network or AP mode where devices can connect directly to the CLA2000. Up to 5 simultaneous/connected devices are possible.

Is the CLA2000 approved globally?

Yes it is and we have all the international certificate such as : SOLAS, IMO, USCG, TUV, FCC, EU, CCNR, CCS, Industry Canada.


What is included in the box?

The AIS transceiver, its mounting bracket, the product manual, the power cable, a 14 way data cable, a 18 way data cable and a GNSS antenna with 10m cable. All you would need to complete the installation is a VHF antenna with a PL259 connector. Using a splitter with a Class A transponder is not recommended.


Can you take off the mounting bracket?

Yes, the mounting bracket can be removed for flush mounting. The mounting bracket can also be reserved if someone wants to hang the AIS transponder from the coach roof.


How to configure the unit?

With its colour graphics screen, all the configuration of the transponder can be done through the unit’s user interface such as configuring all of the Ship’s Static data, Voyage data, Alarm/Sensor configuration, NMEA setup, etc.  There is no software required for the CLA2000’s configuration. An onscreen keyboard makes entering text and numbers “easier”.


Can I connect the CLA2000 to my equipment’s using NMEA?

The CLA2000 has multiple NMEA 0183 inputs and outputs for connecting to charting systems and sensors. An optional NMEA 2000 drop cable can connect the CLA2000 to the vessels NMEA 2000 backbone.


Can the CLA2000 be installed on any type of boat even NON Solas ?

Yes, the CLA2000 is ideal for non-SOLAS vessels with many of the interfacing and features that larger pleasure and work boats need.


Can the CLA2000 be installed outside?

Yes, the CLA2000 is waterproof to IPX7 so it is water and immersion resistant.


Can I stop the AIS transmission with a Silent switch?

If the CLA2000 is being used in a Non-SOLAS or Inland mode, you can fit a “Silent Switch” (like a Class B).


How to get detailed charts on the unit?

The CLA2000 supports C-Map MAX charts. There is a waterproof Micro SD card slot (front bottom left) so you need to buy charts from C-Map. The detailed chart function is only available in NonSOLAS mode. With added chart plotter functionality, the CLA2000 is a powerful AIS display and backup to the vessel’s main charting system.


Can we configure the CPA and TCPA alarm?

Through the CLA2000’s menu, you can configure all the CPA and TCPA alarms.


What’s the power consumption?

At 12V, the unit will consume around 0.9A (6A peak) and at 24V, it will consume around 0.5 A (4 A peak).


Which app or software for the wifi?

The new CLA2000 has a powerful Wi-Fi interface for sending AIS data to mobile devices and PCs. It supports TCP and UDP modes for maximum App compatibility. The WiFI can work in AP mode, creates its own wireless network, or Client (STA) mode where it joins an existing wifi network. We keep up to date reviews on our news blog at– search on iOS or Android.  Popular apps include iRegatta, iNavX, NMEA Remote, iAIS, NavLink, iSailor, SeaPilot, Weather 4D, MaxSea TimeZero, AIS View and literally 100s more.
